Win for ArtsEd Graduate at The Stage Debut Awards

Posted on: September 22nd, 2017 by artsAdmin

The inaugural ‘The Stage Debut Awards’ on Sunday 17th September 2017, celebrated actors and creatives who have made their professional theatre debuts in the past twelve months.

Miriam-Teak Lee, 2017 Musical Theatre graduate, took home the award for 'Best Actress in a Musical' for her outstanding performance in On the Town at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre in London.

In her acceptance speech Miriam-Teak shared her mother’s advice ‘whatever you put in, is what you get out’, a maxim she applies to each and every one of her performances. She also thanked ArtsEd Principal, Chris Hocking, and her brother, Dex Lee, a fellow ArtsEd alumnus, for their support and inspiration.

If you missed Miriam-Teak in On The Town, your next chance to see her on stage will be in the hotly anticipated West End opening of Hamilton at the Victoria Palace Theatre alongside Tarinn Callender, a fellow 2017 graduate.

Huge congratulations also go to ArtsEd graduates Siena Kelly and Daniel Urch for their Debut Award nominations for wonderful performances in On the Town and 10 in the Shade at Ye Olde Rose and Crown.

ArtsEd Comes Out Top in National Student Survey

Posted on: September 19th, 2017 by artsAdmin

ArtsEd has been ranked as the top drama school for overall student satisfaction in the 2017 National Student Survey. The survey gives final year undergraduates a chance to comment on their course and institution, asking 27 questions relating to eight different apects of the learning experience. NSS talks to students across the UK and nearly 3 million have taken part. 

This was the first time that ArtsEd had entered the survey and it was rewarding to find out that 97% of our students were pleased with their training overall. We hope this actively encourages all those hoping to come to ArtsEd and launch their own musical theatre and acting careers. 

Principal Chris Hocking said: “We are continually reviewing and refining our acting and musical theatre courses to ensure that the training we provide is of the highest quality and prepares students for the particular demands of today’s industry. Our students have always had a strong and positive voice within ArtsEd and we are delighted that this is now reflected in the National Student Survey results.”
